    this high flying stock needs additional catalysts to keep it aloft.

    goog is making efforts to monetize it's youtube property, and is trying to move into mobile ads. goog's recent acquistion of ad mob (think mobile ad network) is currently held up pending govt. scrutiny. in addition to mobile ads, goog's android platform for mobile is already here, and goog may also be moving into mobile hardware, aka "the google phone".

    sources say the new device may be called Nexus One and is made by HTC. Distribution channels are a bit fuzzy....goog may have simultaneously sell a subsidized handset (through T mobile) and a they may sell a handset with directly with any carrier.....this handset would be more expensive but allows the user to choose the carrier (goog is negotiating with a few a carriers now).

    if goog does sella handset direct, check the url www.google/phone currently a 404 error but sources tell me that is the url to be used IF ( a big if...) goog does sell a handset directly.

    device details:
    runs Android 2.1 atop a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 3.7-inch, 480 x 800 display, has 512MB of ROM, 512MB of RAM, and a 4GB microSD card (expandable to 32GB). The phone is a T-Mobile device (meaning no 3G if you want to take it to AT&T)

    time will tell......but my sources say they goog is working hard to deliver something in Jan...they don't want to be upstaged by aapl.

    (remember that goog ceo had to step down from aapl BOD due to "conflict of interest", and had to step out of aapl BOD meetings whenever aapl mobile strategy was discussed.)

    The smartphone market is becoming very overcrowded, Dell is next on the list for a smartphone.
